Title Change

The news was released today that FIRST senior management has decided to update my title to remove the ‘Acting’ part, so now I’m Director of FRC.

I want to thank the incredible FRC staff for their over-the-top support throughout the last year. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, and again, FIRST isn’t just a job to them, it’s in their hearts. They’re the best.

I also want to thank the rest of the FIRST staff for all they’ve done in support of the FRC Program and in support of me personally. You may not know them, and may never know them, but they put everything they have into delivering the best possible experience for all FRC participants.

Finally, I want to thank all the teams and volunteers for their kind comments and support, in person, in emails, and on Chief Delphi. It’s not possible for me to put into words what you mean to me. Let’s keep working together to make a great program even better.

I’m moved, and humbled. I still can’t believe I get to do something that brings me such joy for a living. Thank you, thank you, thank you.



I'm so glad that this finally happened. Great Work!

A well deserving position, after all you've done over the past year to successfully improve FRC for all of us!

Well it's about time. Congrats!

Congratulations! Senior management has made an excellent decision and I look forward to your continued excellent leadership. It has been a pleasure to interface with you over the last few years. The new flow of information and transparency coming from FRC Headquarters has been greatly appreciated.

Congrats Frank! Definitely the right move for FIRST. It has been a pleasure talking to you this past season, I look forward to continuing to work with you in the coming years!

Congrats Frank you deserve it!

This is great news. All of us knew you would be a great choice and I for one, am happy it is finally official. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Congrats from 111

That's great news for the FRC program.
Good luck in your new old role Frank!

Great news and great choice. I can't think of a decision that's been better supported by the community.

Acting was just a formality.
